The Editor's Say to the Brethren. 

The 1905 Annual is sent out with the prayer that it will be help- 
ful to the cause we represent; it is sent, too, with the feeling that it 
is not perfect, for changes have taken place since the reports were 
sent in, and possibly* since the reports were given to the printers. 

Ju the gathering of the material, the great sacrifice made by 
many of our churches and ministers has been revealed. I have read 
these accounts, laid the letters down, later read them again, then 
thanked God for such noble men and women. A quotation from one 
letter will reveal the real facts in many others : "I am very sorry 
to have to send you such a poor report of our conference; but really 
our people are so scattered and so poor, and I have preached so 
long for almost nothing, and am so far behind financially, that I 
now have to turn my attention to something else so that I can get 
square with the world." Such sacrifices are not fully realized only 
by those who make them. 

The heart}^ co-operation of all is needed to make the Annual 
what it ought to be; and all should feel free to send corrections 
when the need is seen. The book should be as correct as it is pos- 
sible to make it. 

i am not sure that the list of conference is complete, but it is all 
I could get. 

Possibly some ministers are left out of the Directory who ought 
to be in ; if so, I am very sorry ; but I could only put in those 
who reported to me, as asked for weeks in the Herald of Gospel 
LiBKRTY, or were reported by the conference ofiicers. 

It was necessary to treat all the illustrations alike; this will 
account for some things being omitted. 

Manj' kind words have been said, but not one word which re- 
vealed the spirit of harshness or impatience, no matter how often 
information was asked. 

1 want to thank all the conference clerks and officers for their 
kindness and patience, and trust that as they read the Annual 
an.:] discover mistakes, they will feel kindly toward editor and 
printer, and remember that the mistakes were not intentionally 

Finally, "The Lord bless thee, and keep thee; the Lord lift up his 
couutenance upon thee, and give thee peace." The Editor. 



The Christian Publishing Association. 

Officers and Trustees. 

President, 0. \Y. Whitelock, Huntington, Indiana. 

Secretary, Rev. Henry Crampton, Eaton, Ohio. * 

Treasurer, George Worley, Covington, Ohio. 

Publishing Agent, J. N. Hess, Dayton. Ohio. 


Rev. T. M. MeWhinney, Rev. G. D. Lawrence, 
Rev. D. M. Helfenstein, Rev. I. H. Gray, 

Rev. W. W. Staley, E. L. Goodwin, 

Prof. J. X. Dales, also the President and Secretary. 

The new building of the Christian Publishing Association is one in which we 
can all feel an interest; it is located on one of the best corners in the city, one 
block from the union railioad station and one block from the post-office — -two per- 
manent buildings. Our building has a good basement; four store-rooms on the 
first floor; several suites of rooms on second and third floors, and offices and compo- 
sition room on the fourth floor for the Association's use. The building will be 
<'quipped with modern machinery, elevator, etc. The succ«ss of the enterprise is 
due to the business tact of 0. W. Whitelock and I. H. Gray, and to the unceasing 
oversight of J. N. Hess. These brethren certainly deserve the hearty appreciation 
of our people everywhere. 

The business of the Association is in a healthy condition, and the prospects are 
encouraging. During 1904, three new books have been issued — ^Scripture Doctrine, 
by J. J. Summerbell; Fruit-Bearing Truths, by J. P. Barrett, and Christian Endeavor 
Addresses, by J. F. Burnett. These books should be bought and read by our people, 
for they are by our own brethren. 

During the year new editions of The Christian Hymnary, The Complete Sunday- 
school Secretary Book, and The Complete Sunday-school Class Book were issued, 
beside a number of pamphlets on various topics. 

The subscription list of the Herald of Gospel Liberty is larger than it was a 
year ago, and the Sunday-school literature is doing well. 

We can be loyal to our Publishing House without being sectarian, and it is very 
easy to see that if we do not look out for our own institutions and support them, 
we cannot expect them to succeed. Let us be true to what God has placed in our 
hands to take care of for his cause, and to enable the world to reach a much higher 
plane of existence. Editors, Secretaries and Agents can succeed only as the people 
who elect them to these positions of tremendous responsibility and tr\ist stand by 
them. ' Henry Crampton, Secretary.

The American Christian Convention. 

This body represents the organized forces 
of the Christians. In its quadrennial meet- 
ing an attempt is made to secure the expres- 
sion of the best thought concerning our com- 
mon interests, and to devise measures for 
promoting the welfare of the institutions 
and organizations represented. . 

The few days spent in counsel once in four 
years are not sufficient to do more tiian re- 
view the work of the quadrennium and in- 
augurate needful measures for enlarging and 
carrying forward the enterprises of the de- 
nomination. Continuous work is demanded 
to make the plans of the Convention effec- 
tive. This is pro\nded for by committing 
the work to secretaries, boards and other 
agencies, and placing all under the supervis- 
ion of the Executive Board of the Conven- 

Four factors enter into the success of the 
Convention measures ; the wisdom of the 
plans, the faithfulness and efficiencv of the 
officers, the proper co-operation of the de- 
partments, and the support of the people. 
The responsibility for the first and second 
rests with the Convention in its quadrennial 
assembly; the oiners may be greatly helped 
by ■wise action on the part of the Executive 
Board. To this end annual meetings for 
review of the work and for supplementary 
plans to meet emergencies are held; statis- 
tics . are gathered ; information concerning 
the work of the departments is disseminat- 
ed, both through the denominational papers, 
and by other publications; and, to some ex- 
tent visitation of conferences and institu- 
tions by representatives of the Board is 
provided for. Misunderstandings are re- 
moved, conflict between the work of various 
departments is avoided, and the effectiveness 
of all is increased. 

A very important part of tae Convention 
work is done by the General Secretary. Be- 
quests are coming constantly for informa- 
tion, advice and encouragement. The suc- 
cess of all the departments has been aided 
by the quiet work done in the secretary's 
office. Whatever incidental expenses are 


incurred by the Sunday-school and Christian 
Endeavor departments are met from the 
collections of the Convenuion Secretary, as 
these have no treasuries of their own. 
Probably no contribution for general pur- 
poses brings better results than the one for 
the American Christian Convention, al- 
though it has always been the smallest of 
the authorized collections. 

The Convention is coming to be more gen- 
erally recognized as the leader in our organ- 
ized work. The whole is greater than any 
of its parts, and the Convention is more 
than any one of its departments. But here, 
as with individuals, the- law holds, that the 
agency that is greatest anions us will be 
that which is most truly servant of all.'

All money from woman's missionary so-

Mrs. Warbinton; for foreign missions to

The total receipts to the mission treasury 
the last year were $19,138.56. This includes 
.$•2,228.03 which came through the Woman's 
Board for Foreign Missions, and $723.24 
which came through the Woman's Board for 
Home Missions. 

The total receipts for all purposes this 
year are $1,336.08 more than last year. But 
while this is true, the outlay to meet, in 
some measure, the growth of the work, has 
been correspondingly larger than the in- 
crease of the income, so that we find the bal- 
ance on hand — $1.974.92— less than we had 
on hand at the beginning of last year by 


The following statistics will indicate — 



perhaps about as accmatelj' as tabulated 
statistics can indicate — something of the 
work done the r)ast vear in the home field : 


Number of workers for the whole 

or a part of the year 28 

Number of sermons preached 2,519 

Number of services held 3,926 

Number of religious calls made.. 6,907 
Number of conversions reported . . 348 

Number of members received .... 383 

Number of churches organized .... 4 

Number of Sunday-schools organized 12 

Average attendance at church service 5,411 
Average attendance at Sunday-school 3,681 
Number of subscriptions to The 

Christian Missionary 159 

Number of subscriptions to Her- 
ald of Gospel Liberty 49 

Amount paid by missions toward 

missionaries' salaries $4,756.87 

Amount paid on A. C. C. calls. . . . 511.01 
Amount paid for all other purposes 6,178.61 
Both the statistical reports and the let- 
ters from the various home missionaries, as 
given quarterly in The Christian Mission- 
ary, have shown good work done. At Toron- 
to, Canada, Columbus, Ga., Greensboro. N. 
C, and Danville, 111., new churches were 
built. At Rifle, Colo., Lima, Ohio, and 
North Greensboro, N. C., new churches are 
in process of construction. Our mission work 
in Colorado, North Dakota and Montana, 
made encouraging progress the last year, 
and is starting in well for this year — Our 
mission fiscal year commences and ends 
October first. 

.■^ppropnalic.ns are vo*.ed this yeai for 
about thirty points. Does some one say, 
"That is spreading the small amount avail- 
able over too much territory? Perhaps 
that is so. And perhaps, the critic who 
thinks so, would do no better were he added 
to the Board and with the other nine mem- 
bers should see the field in its vastness and 
needs, as it is seen and learned from the ap- 
pealing letters that come from the various 
quarters of the United States and Canada. 
Of one thing we feel sure, if many of our 

pastors could sit one week with the Mission 
Board in its annual meetings, they would 
see that larger ofl"erings were sent up from 
their churches. 



Noth with standing the terrible war in 
which Japan is now engaged, the past year 
was more fruitful in spiritvial results, than 
any previous year in the history of our work 
in that country. There were more conver- 
sions and baptisms. 

A new station was opened at Utsunomiya, 
a city of 40,000; capital of a province, lying 
between Tokyo and Sendai. God has already 
given them several converts — foundation 
for a church in that city. 

Miss True being entitled to a furlough, it 
was expected that slie would come home in 
October last. But feeling that health condi- 
tions did not demand it, and that her ser- 
vices were so much needed there, she re- 
quested to be permitted to remain at her 
post of duty for another year. How noble 
the self-denial — for Christ's sake. 

One very encouraging feature of the work 
is the success of the Bible Training School 
in Tokyo— in the securing of students, and 
the evangelistic work that is being done by 
the students. Encouraging because more 
efficient native workers are so much needed, 
as well as more missionaries. Tne school 
begins this year with ten students. Need is 
already being felt for larger quarters for 
our school work. The need for more mis- 
sionaries and more buildings is an appeal 
that ought to be heard by our people.

tics of the Japan work for the year closing

Besides the above, the students in the 
Bible Training School in Tokyo, ten all 
together, do much Christian work — Sunday- 
school teaching and soul-winning. 


Rev. T. E. White and Rev. Jennie Mishler, 
both, on account of health conditions, came 
home on furlough; Sister Mishler, early in 
April and Brother White, the latter part 
of May. Brother White returned to the 
field in October, while Sister Mishler is 
working among the home churches in the 
interest of the work for a time. Notwith- 
standing the smallness of the working force 
on the field for so much of the year — Broth-

Mucli more than usual of the Campmeet- 
ing work at Craig\'ille, Mass., last August 
was given to the cause of missions, in which 
much interest was taken. 

The second International Missionary Con- 
ference, held at Farmland, Ind., in October, 
was characterized by marked spiritual pow- 
er and a deepened and increased interest in 
missions. The collection, though hardly 
half what seems to some of us it should have 
been, was larger than at our previous 

The subject of missions is securing a larg- 
er place in the thoughts of more of our peo- 
ple, and is being given a larger place on the 
programs of more of our annual confer- 
ences, conventions, and institutes. 

The demand is being created and recog- 
nized for more distinctively missionary con- 
ferences and rallies. 

More of the Woman's Conference Mission- 
ary Boards are planning for, and holding a 
mid-year missionary conference, usually of 
one day. 

More Auxiliary church missionary socie- 
ties are being organized. 

Fully one-half more mission tract litera- 
ture was sent out from the mission rooms 
last year than during any previous year. 

Of The Christian Missionary, one million 
three hundred and seventy-two thousand 
eight hundred pages were printed and sent 
out during the the year. The magazine has 
found its way into quite a number of new 
homes during the year, and we have the 
assurance that its spirit, aim and work are 
being appreciated. It goes into some of the 
libraries of the country, into the reading 
rooms of our colleges, and on exchange, into 
the offices of American and European mis- 
sionary societies. As our representative in 
these places it guarantees a knowledge of 

our missionary work and its record in tlie 
missionary history of the age. 

This magazine is the official and only mis- 
sionary organ of the denomination. While 
ft e other papers of the denomination speak 
out, and speak well, for missions. The Chris- 
tian Missionary is the only one that gives 
the reports of the Mission officers, and the 
missionaries in both the home and foreign 
fields, witli much otiier information regard- 
ing our own work and the work of others in 
the great missionary world, that our people 
can get nowhere else. 

The January number is to contain the re- 
poit of the late International Missionary 
Conference — papers, speeches, and addresses. 
This issue alone will be worth the price of 
the magazine for a whole year — which is 
fifty cents. 


Three new recruits for the foreign field 
were put under appointment at the last 
meeting of the Board. One was already un- 
der appointment. These four, with Miss 
Mishler now at home on furlough, should all 
be sent to the field this year; and v>ill he 
if our home churches will make it possible — 
possible to send these and support those al- 
ready on the field. Able? No question 
about that. It is only a question of willing 
obedience to the Lord's command, to "Go" or 
•'Send." And that question may involve our 
own salvation. "To him that knoweth to do 
good," — when he has the ability and oppor- 
tunity — "and doeth it not, to him it is 
sin." James 4 :14. 


We watched her breathing through the night, 

Her breathing soft and low, 
As in her breast the wave of life 

Kept heaving to and fro. 

So silently we seemed to speak, 

So slowly moved about. 
As we had lent her half our powprs 

To eke her living out. 

Our very hopes belied our fears. 

Our fears our hopes belied — 
We thought her dying when she slept. 

And sleeping when she died. 

For when the morn came, dim and sad. 

And chill with early showers. 
Her quiet eyelids closed — she had 

Another morn than ours. 

— Thomas Hood. 



Mrs. Emma Dickson was 
82 years old November G, 
1904. That day being Sun- 
day, she walked five blocks 
to and from our church 
in Dayton, Ohio, and by 
request gave a talk to the 
Sunday-school, and offered 
li.e opening prayer in the 
church service. Mrs. Dick- 
son is the widow of one 
of our well-known minis- 
ters, and the mother of 
Mrs. J. N. Hess, with 
whom she has her home. 

Each man must seek 
and find truth for him- 
self and in his own way, 
and only that truth 
which he finds and 
makes his own has any 
value to him or affects 
his character. Mere as- 
sent or umvilling con- 
sent to what others be- 
lieve to be truth is ut- 
terly valueless to him. 
— William D. Little. 


\\ritten Ly Rev. Eliza L. Brown, Liberty. Indiana, on the occasion 
of our latest Quadrennial Meeting. 

Lord, as thy people meet, 

Down by the sea, 
And at the mercy seat 

Offer their plea, 
Hear thou the prayers we raise, 
Hear thou our songs of praise, 
Lead us in all our v,'ays 

Nearer to thee. 

As the great billows roll. 

At thy decree, 
Held by thy sure control, 

Yet flowing free, 
So may we own thy power, 
Thought, word and action o'er; 
Draw as our souls adoro, 

Nearer to tlier 

Fortli in the bloom of youth. 
Through love to thee, 
.Bearing thy word of truth 

Over the .sea, 
Hence have our loved Ones gone. 
That light divine shall dawn 
In souls that shall be drawn 
Nearer to thee. 

As the blue waters bright 

Fill all the sea. 
Breaking in waves of light, 

Shall knowledge of thee fill 
Each waiting land until 
All learn to do thy will, 
All trust in thee.

President, Board of Trustees of Aged Ministers' Home. 

A home for worthy, aged and needy 
Christian ministers, their wives or wid- 
ows, established and incorporated in 
1894. Located at Castile, Wyoming Co., 
N. Y., in easy reach of a Christian 
Church. The Home is sustained by do- 
nations and the income of a small en- 
dowment — $10,000 — given by the late 
Hon. Francis A. Palmer, of Broadway, 
New York. The endowment ought to be 
raised to $25,000.

Educational Department. 

Rev. M. W. Baker, Springfield, Ohio. 
Secretary for Education American 

Christian Convention. 
The Educational Board met in October, 
when some changes were made in its person- 
nel. This resulted from the resignation of 
Rev. John Blood as a member and treasurer 
of the Board, to take the presidency of l.iC 
re-organized Board of Control for Franklin- 
ton College. Rev. W. G. >Sargent of Toron- 
to was elected to membership on the Board, 
which was re-organized as follows: 


Rev. Marion W. Baker, Ph. D.. B. D., 
Springfield, Ohio, president; Rev. ^Y. G. 
Sargent, B. A., Toronto, Ontario, clerk ; Pro- 
fessor ^Y. A. Bell, LL. D., Indianapolis, In- 
diana, treasurer; Rev. P. H. Fleming. M. A., 
Burlington. N. C 

The first year's experience demonstrated 
that the interests of Franklinton College 
could not be advantageouslv managed in 

coniu'ction with the more general education- 
al work of the Board, and as a result and by 
advice of the A. C. C. Executive Board, the 
"Franklinton Board of Control was revived 
and to it was referred the entire manage- 
ment of our school for Negroes. This board 
consists of the following members : 


Rev. John Blood, Lewisburg, Pa., presi- 
dent and treasurer ; Rev. N. Del McRey- 
nolds, Bellefontaine, Ohio; Rev. J. L. Fos- 
ter. Raleigh, N. C ; Rev. W. H. Hainer, Irv- 
ington, N. J.; Rev. F. H. Peters, Fall Riv- 
er, Mass. 


p]xperience also indicated that the Edu- 
cational calls could be sent out and re- ' 
mittances receipted more convenienlly and 
economically from the office of the A. C. C. 
Secretary. This plan was endorsed by the 
A. C. C. Executive Board and adopted. The 
A. C. C. Secretary receipts, acknowledges, 
and turns over to the Educational treasurer, 
all money for educational purposes. Both 
receipts and disbursements are published in 
the Herald of Gospel Laherty. 


The total receipts from November, 1902, 
to May. 1904, (including only one regular 
collection) were about $1,700.00. For the 
present year the indications are for a some- 
what smaller sum. This should be available 
for distribution early in 1905. the date de- 
pending on two issues, viz., the promptness 
with which the churches remit, and the 
promptness with which the .beneficiary 
schools supply the information for the cur- 
rent year on which the appropriations are 
to be reckoned. 


The Board seeks such knowledge of every 
school as will enable an intelligent dis- 
tribution, putting every dollar where its use 
promises the greatest good to the greatest 
number. In determining the distribution 
the effort is to consider all related circum- 
stances and conditions. The endowment, 
other sources of income, the current expen- 



ses, the separate and total salaries, the 
number of teachers and the amount of work 
each actually renders, the equipment, the 
courses, the number and class of students, 
the aggressiveness and policy of the school, 
and the accomplishment in proportion to the 
opportunities and resources — all these en- 
ter into the consideration of the Board in 
determining appropriations. 

That the institutions should not in all 
■cases see matters from the Board's point of 
view is not surprising. The problem is sim- 
ilar to that met by the Mission Board in 
determining what churches asking aid give 
promise of surest and largest returns, and 
to what extent each can be helped from the 
limited funds available for that purpose. 


The past year records no great growth, 
but life and progress are in general evidence. 
Some additions have been made to endow- 
ments, some courses have been revised, 
some gains made in enrollment and income, 
while Starkey, Elon, Deiiance and Palmer 
have added to their apparatus for labora- 
tory work. At Defiance and Elon, homes 
for ladies are needed and planned. U. C. 
College is in a stage of transition, having 
during the year changed presidents, revised 
courses, and entered on negotiations looking 
toward removal. On the whole, the statis- 
tics do not differ materially from those sub- 
mitted a year ago, and therefore are not 
this year given in tabular form. 


The Secretary has, by addressing letters 
to the officers of each conference, sought to 
come into communication with the whole 
field. The gathering of educational statis- 
tics, information, facts and standards is of 
vital importance. Encouraging but not 
wholly satisfactory results have been ob- 
tained. Better acquaintance among the 
brethren of the various sections, will ren- 
der plans for united forward effort along ed- 
ucational, as well as other lines, more def- 
inite and effective. 


During the year visits were made to 
Queen's University, Christian Biblical In- 

stitute, Starkey Seminary, and Union Chris- 
tian College. During the coming year it is 
hoped that at least one trip may be made 
possible, including in its itinerary our 
southern or our western schools. 


The course of study authorized by the A. 
C. C. at Norfolk, has been published, togeth- 
er with a brief sketch of each of our nine 
schools, making a pamphlet of fifty-four 
pages. Copies of this may be had from Sec- 
retary Burnett, Muncie, Ind. The course is 
not set forth as absolute or final, but as 
suggestive. It should form the basis from 
which should result by additions, elimina- 
tions, substitutions and revision the best 
practical course for ministers. 


The Educational Department in the Rer- 
ald of Gospel Liberty has been conducted, 
and is believed to have proven an effective 
means of promoting educational interests. 


The work that should be done by the 
A. C. C. Educational Secretary is of such 
nature and importance that its satisfactory 
execution is impossible as a secondary duty 
added to those of a pastor. Here rises a 
serious, practical question : To what extent 
should a pastor take for general work, time 
and energy rightly belonging to the study 
and the parish? If by the time of the 
next meeting of the Convention, plans could 
be laid for the employment of at least a 
part of the time of a practical educator, 
who should be at the head of our denomin- 
tional work in education, seeking by visita- 
tion, publication, advice, solicitation, and 
correlation to promote these interests, a def- 
inite step in a right and promising direction 
will have been made. 

Other denominations employ such officers 
with good resvilts in securing students, 
funds, endowment, teachers, and as an in- 
structor in methods of studying and teach- 
ing, as well as in other special subjects, in- 
cluding Bible introduction and exposition. 
This field offers for us a rich harvest if a 
resourceful man can be put to work in it. 


With institutions as witli individuals, 



there must be division of labor. Each has a 
special and peculiar work to the perform- 
ance of which all energies should be engaged. 
We believe that the denominational school 
still has a mission whose accomplishment 
measures success. 

This mission is in rare cases, if in any, the 
duplication of work offered by the public 
schools which the American people are glad 
to support by taxation. Church schools 
should supplement the state schools, and 
not enter into unnecessary competition with 
them. The supplementary w'ork needed is 
sufficient to engage all the resources of mon- 
ey and scholarship that the churches can 
produce and maintain. 

Whatever lines of essential instruction 
are neglected or deficient in the public insti- 
tutions of any state, should determine the 
work for the denominational schools of that 
state. We should not imitate the example 
of Romanism, in seeking to weaken the 
worth and usefulness of public institutions. 
The time may come when only distinctively 
religious instruction will be left to the de- 
nominational schools in most states. The 
church school, like the churches and the 
public schools, is a means and not an end in 
itself. The recognition of its work as sup- 
plemental will aid in handling the vexed 
question agitating some educators, and ar- 
raying church schools against state schools. 

Only when a church school offers superior 
instruction, courses, influences or opportuni- 
ties has it a moral right to seek patronage 
from those who would otherwise be in pub- 
lic institutions. The same is true in a com- 
parison of church schools among themselves. 
This is the only ground upon which our peo- 
ple can be urged to patronize our own 
schools — not that they are ours, but that 
they are as good at least, as the same per- 
sons might other\vise attend. The educa- 
tional training of our children is second in 
importance to their moral and spiritual 
training. It indeed has its main significance 
from being inseparable from character-mak- 
ing. It is as vital as the physical well 
being of the child. We do not put an ill 

child under the care of nurse or physician 
because of family or denominational rela- 
tions, but because We believe no better is 
available. So shall it be with the schools. 


The plan for centralizing (at Queen's 
University our eastern students), receives 
approval from this department and from the 
brethren of the section concerned because of 
what the school is and of what it offers. 
The character of an institution is deter- 
mined, not by its size or its endowment, but 
by its courses, instructors, thoroughness, 
and practical success in mind and character 
building. No class of schools, large or small, 
church or state, endowed or unendowed, in- 
cludes all either of the superior or the in- 
ferior institutions or instructors. 

Much is said in praise of the small school 
as generally superior, but if the virtue lies 
in being small, why is" every one of the small 
schools that is improving its opportunities 
and accomplishing a mission, striving un- 
ceasingly to get big? 

The writer studied at the small school, 
the large school, and that of medium size; 
at the church school, the state school, and 
the independent school; at the co-education- 
al school and that for men only. In each 
are found teachers who help and those who 
hinder; students who work and those who 
shirk; the spendthrift and the economist. 
These extremes meet in schools of every 


Not size, claims, management, or sources 
of support, but character determines the 
worth of institutions as of individuals. 
Service and prosperity lie in the way of the 
cultivation of those elements that form 
character, and in that way we are glad to 
believe our schools go.

Christian Biblical Institute, 


This is the Theological School and Ministerial Training School of 
the religious body known as " Chriotians,'' instituted under the action of 
the American Christian Convention taken in 1866. 


of the founders of the school was to aid in preparation for their own min- 
istry; but it is open to well accredited Chiistians who desire to prepare 
for the ministry or other gospel work, without regard to sex, age, or de- 
nominational preferences. Its desire is to help build up the kingdom of 
Christ in any way it can best be done. 

Its theological " standard " is the Bible. Hence the object of the 
school is primarily and chiefly the study of the Bible, especially the New 
Testament, believing that from this source the preacher draws his best 
preparations for his work. Its courses of study are arranged with 
reference to this. 

By additions to the corps of teachers, last year, by securing Miss 
Stone, and this year Prof. S. G. Palmer, the Institute is enabled to do 
broader and more thorough work in lines specially adapted to the pur- 
pose for which the school is established, without adding to the students' 


of the school are light. It aims to bring its privileges within the reach 
of all by offering its tuition and the use of its very pleasant, furnished 
rooms free of charge, and by bringing board and other expenses to the 
lowest figure consistent with wise economy. The buildings are pleasant 
and pleasantly located. The students' rooms are cheerful, well lighted, 
and warmed by a hot-water system. The entire expenses of a school 
year, including heat and books, need not be above $85 or JSioo.

Sunday-School Department. 

REV. T. S. WEEKS, Fall Rivek, Mass. 
Sunday-school Secretary American Christian Convention. 

To the Brotherhood: 

We should be glad to report the numer- 
ical strength and other items of interest 
concerning the standing of our Sunday- 
schools in a definite and satisfactory man- 
ner, but as yet that is impossible. It is 
always well to have something to look for- 
ward to. When all our conferences appre- 
ciate the importance of Sunday-school work 
to the full, we shall then get reports from 
the proper officials in proper form, and be 
able in turn to put them in touch with 
many helpful things of which they know 
not now. 

It is safe to assume that we have more 
than 100,000 pupils,, teachers, and officers in 
our Sunday-schools, perhaps as many as 
12.5,000. Here is a great opportunity which 
entails a great responsibility. It means 
that more than 100.000 people, most of them 
young, are in contact with the open P>il)le in 

an atmosphere of religious liberty which is 
favorable to growth in grace and in the 
knowledge of Jesus Christ, and of the for- 
mer through the latter best of all. 

It makes a great difference whether a true 
manhood is nourished by the spirit of truth, 
or whether that manhood is cramped and fet- 
tered by a creed. The Bible is intended to 
help us to a larger life, a fuller life, a higher 
life; for these are the qualities of the "life 
eternal" which comes through a knowledge 
of the true God and Jesus Christ the sent 
one in whom the grace and truth are seen. 

The Bible school is the best agency for the 
development of a sane and satisfactory re- 
ligious life among the people, but the Bible 
school may be greatly improved beyond 
what it is to-day. It has been depreciated 
for what it has not done, but it should be 
approved and improved for what it has done 
and for what it may do. 

Not long ago we heard Marion Lawrence 
say that it was wisdom for the farmer to 
pay the most attention to the field which 
yields the largest crop ; and that as the Sun- 
day-school is that field of Christian activity 
which yields the largest returns to the king- 
dom of God, the church should pay more at- 
tention to it. We desire to endorse his 

Some churches (not a few), pay more 
money for the sexton, the choir, the social 
functions, or the floral decorations, than 
they do for the Sunday-school. We object. 
It would be as sensible for the farmer to 
waste all his fertilizers on his sheep pasture, 
and leave his meadows to run out or his 
( orn-fields to become barren, as it is for the 
church to expend energy and money on these 
minor agencies and neglect the most pro- 
ductive one of all. We trust the opening 
year may be marked by an advance move- 
ment on Sunday-school lines. We suggest 
special attention to the following items, 
which are a few of the many: 
• 1. Better rooms and better equipment 
for the Sunday-school. 

2. Better lesion helps. In harmony with 
the editor of the S. S. Literature, whose 
article appears in this department of the 
Annual, we are seeking for such improve- 
ments as are desirr ..j on this line. 

3. Better qualihcations for those who 
teach in the Sunday-school. Somebody in 
every church should be responsible for teach- 
ing tile teachers what to teach, and how to 
teach it. 

4. Sunday-school extension through such 
agencies as the Home D^paitment and the 



Medway, New York, Church. Reopened November, 4. 1904. 
REV. B. L. HESS, Pastor. 

Cradle Eoll. until you have many whole 
parishes enf^aged in a well directed study 
of the Word of God. 

There are two courses of study arranged 
by the International Lesson Connnittee for 

We are to spend the first six months 
studying the writings of John, beginning 
with John 1, and ending with Rev. 22. 

From July to January, 1906, we are to 
study the Old Testament from Isaiah to 
Malachi. This will furnish interesting ma- 
terial, and it is better arranged in course 
than such studies have usually been. 

Let us make much of the Sunday-school 
lessons for 190.5. 

In all the world the meuiuershin of the 
Sunday-schools is 25,810.861. Of those, 1.3.- 
092, 70.3 are in the United States, 7,456,1 OS 

in P]ngland and Wales, ai.d he smallest 
number is 187 in Greece. 

This membership is in 254,098 Sunday- 
schools, in which are found at work, 2,410,- 
818 teachers, with 23,227,330 scholars. This 
is the greatest department of the church of 
Christ in this world. We are glad to be in 

Vours for Christ and the Sunday-school, 
Thomas S. Weeks. 


The Christian Publishing Association pre- 
])ares four distinct publications for our 
schools, viz: The Sunday-school Herald, 
liihJc Class Quarterly, Intermediate Qua/r- 
lerly, and Little Teacher. Until some three 
years ago there was a second paper alter- 
nating with the Sunday-School Herald — the 



Good Tidings. The two papers carried the 
same ehiss of matter ami each was issued 
semi-monthly. Thus there were 48 issues 
a year only, and no paper for uiie fiftli Sun- 
day. Many schools insisted on iiaving a pa- 
per for each Sunda'- and so tlie Board wise- 
ly concluded to combine the two papers. The 
result is a weekly publication and a nuich 
larger general circulation. While beiore. 
some schools took but one of the two papers, 
now all take a paper tor full time. Since 
the union of the two, the paper has been 
very much enlarged and at least one-tliird 
more matter is given in the one than before 
in the two papers. Our circulation ranges 
from 10,000 to 11,000 copies, which means 
that the Sunday-School Herald enters about 
one-third of me families represented in our 
schools. Could we double the circulation, 
we could make the paper one of six, 
instead of four pages, without in- 
creasing the price. INIany schools 
feel too poor to take the paper, but in such 
cases our wide-awake boys and girls couki 
easily raise clubs for the Sunday-school 
Herald, for which service our .^^gent would 
be glad to give good premiums. ^^ ill not 
our pastors encourage the club idea, where 
their schools do not take the paper? 

The Bible Glass Quarterlj/ has a circula 
tion of about 25.500 copies and the Inter- 
mediate of 23.000. while the Little Teacher 
supplies 16.000 scholars. Thus, we have a 
total circulation of 64,000 helps for our en- 
rollment of about 70,000. Clearly we do 

not reach ail our schools, but no denomina- 
tional House does, and perhaps no House in 
a larger per centage. We would be exceed- 
ingly glad to reach all our schools, as we al- 
ready do in some of our lai'ger conferences. 
The earnings of the Helps for the past ten 
months have been $1,791, which, for the 
year, would be $2,000, and for the quadren- 
nium, $8,000. With such generous earnings, 
furtlicr improvements should be made in the 
literatuie. \^■ith a better quality of paper 
and adapted illustrations, the typographical 
a])pearance would be much imoroved. We 
think that we can assure our schools that 
such improvements will be made as early as 
the second quarter of 1905, when we shall 
be fully installed in our own House. We 
urge loyalty to our own Pviblishing Associa- 
tion and an earnest, kindly appeal to the' 
Trustees for such improvements as are need- 
ed. The colored maps used the past years, 
have added much to the appearance of our 
Helps, but the additional expense of this im- 
provement for the quadrennium will be 
close to $2,000. As we see it, our "schools 
need our own literature as truly as our fam- 
ilies need our own church papers. Not one 
faulting letter has come to us in the eight 
years past. This is gratifying, but we shall 
be equally gratified for any suggestions 
which may tend to the improvement of our 
Sunday-school Literature.

First - class boarding school for 
young people of both sexes, from 
thirteen years old and upward. 
The situation of the school is un- 
rivaled, planted on the verge of the 
plateau overlooking Seneca Lake, 
and in full view of Watkins, the 
site of the famous Watkins Glen.

Owing to the generosity of the late Hon. Francis A. Palmer, 
of New York, the school has possession of a magnificent new 
building, equipped with modern appliances for convenience and 
comfort. Ten teachers, specialists in their several departments, 
compose the Board of Instruction, and the students are pre- 
pared for any college, trained for business or take finishing 
courses in art, elocution and vocal and instrumental music. 
The health record of the school is above the average, and its 
distance from all demoralizing influence tends to promote 
moral and intellectual health. Special watch-care is taken of 
the girls, who are under the supervision of five lady teachers. 
Terms are very moderate, while the table is kept up to the 
standard of schools that charge twice or thrice the Starkey rate. 

For catalogue or information, address the president.

Rev. C. J, JONES, D. D. President. 

Ill choosing a school, we 
naturally take into account 
various qualities; and no sin- 
gle institution may properly 
lay claim to a monopolj' of 
educational excellence. In- 
stitutions, however, like per- 
sons, have individual charac- 
teristics, a history peculiarly 
their own. 

U. C. College has behind it 
a record of more than forty 
j-ears. The school is no longer 
an experiment. Hundreds of 
her representa'ives are now 
filling honorable and lucra- 
tive positions of service in 
almost every calling in life. 
Merit wins in the end, and 
the college has studiously 
tried in all her history to 
deserve a fair share of patron- 
age. Speaking for the man- 
agement, I desire to thank the 
many donors and earnest 
workers whose co-operation 
during tlie past two years par- 
ticularlv, has made the out- 
look liright by opening a large 
field ot'expansion and we trust 
of efficiency. The greatest 
present neeU is more students. 

We confidently affirm that 
the cost of sound instruction 
and living at Merom is much 
lower than in the larger towns 
and more wealthy institu- 
tions. We aim to give the poor 
boy or girl a chance for the 
best things in college life and 

The religions life of our 
young people should be wisely 
and naturally directed. Man 
is a moiat as well as a physical 
'and intellectual being and 
the institution that fails to 
provide food for the spiritual 
life is failing in the most vital 
element of sound training. 
Mere ethics, as a pliilosophy, 
is not enough: we need to 

is not enough: we need to 
cli the inner springs of the religious life; imparting, by example, the Christian motive. This is 
one safes uard — the true ideal — oftducation. This element belongs to every great school, whether 



the students are few or many. 

The Christian College is the best place in this world to prepare for a well rounded life and hence 
a true success. 

In the opinion of able educators I'liioii Christian College is favorably located. The town is 
qniet, healthful, moral. A residence comnuinity surrounded by excellent farms; an abundance 
and extensive variety of frui'; and, -although about two miles from Merom Station, on the Illinois 
Central Railroad, has igood gravel roads and telephone and telegraph privileges. No licensed sa- 
loons nor gambling dens. Athletic grounds and a wholesome spirit of recreation give zest to out- 
door exercise. 

The churches and Christian Associations maintain regular religious services. The Literary 
Societies afford excellent practice in oratory and debate. The Lecture Association, composed of 
the faculty, students and citizens, provides for the ablest speakers and entertainers to be had 
through the lecture bureau^. 

The school trains teachers, lawyers, doctors and farmers as well as preachers. There is no 
cast or creed to hinder a full and free pursuit of study in any line of honorable scholarship. A full 
correspondence course is offered to all who cannot attend the College in person. 

The larger number of students thus far, have .become teachers. Many have taken up courses 
leading to the practice of law and medicine. Some have prepared for business, some for farming, 
and still others for the distinctly literary professions— like journalism.

This the third year in the history of Defiance College under the new organization and 
board of control, is the banner year. Although in its infancy, two hundred and seventy-one 
different students were enrolled last year. It is safe to predict that from three to four hundred 
will be enrolled the present year. Nearly every available room adjacent to the College has been 
taken. Twice as niaiiv students outside of Defiance and Defiance County have already regis- 
tered as were enrolled last year. Students have enrolled from Canada, New York, Illinois, 
Pennsylvania, Michigan, Indiana, Oliio, Iowa and Japan The total enrollment now shows a 
gain of forty per cent in foreign attendance over that of 1903 and 1904. The majority of these 
have had high school or academic courses and have entered college. One at a glance is i:n- 
pressed with the high character of the student body. Some of those enrolled have formerly 
attended the Ohio State University, Delaware aud other large institutions, but have come to 
Defiance because of the advantages offered by the small college. 

There are several reasons for this growth and advancement In the first place the school 
disappoints no candidate who possesses good, moral character and is willing to apply himself 
diligently All worthy and competent graduates from every department are in demand. 

Another reason for this growth is the fact that expenses are extraordinarily low. 

A third reason is the confidence gained by the close personal attention given by the faculty 
to every student. Tareiits know that their sons and daughters are safe in Defiance College. 
They know that it aims at the highest type of Christian culture. The choice of a school often 
determines the future life of a student. No young man or woman can afford to experiment. 

It is the purpose of the management and the Board of Trustees to build up a school that 
will not only be a credit to thems-lves, but to the city of Defiance and the surrounding country 
and the body of people they represent Willi this object in view, every eflfort is being directed 
toward the establishment of the ideal college. It is the desire of the board to furnish young 
men and women an opportunity to obtain a thorough education along any line and at a small 

Every student is sure to get value received, provided he is diligent, ambitious, earnest and 
possesses the essential elements of the twentieth century manhood.

College, N. C. ; Assistant Secretary, Rev. J. W.

The home mission work of the convention 
as shown by the report of the president of the 
Christian Missionary Association at the last 
meeting of the Southern Convention is in suc- 
cessful operation. The Association, in addi- 
tion to aiding special points, maintains two 
general missionaries in its bounds. As re- 
gards foreign missions, it is believed there is 
a steady growth of interest. A special call 
was made upon the conference for missions 
at the late session of the Convention. 

The ofiicers of the Christian Missionary As 
sociation are : Rev. J. O. Atkinson, President, 
Elon College, N. C. ; Rev. J. W. Johnson, Sec- 
retary, Suffolk, Va. The Association meets 
Tuesday after the first Sunday in December, 
1905. The report of the Committee on Schools 
and Colleges, made at Berea Church, Nanse- 
mond Co., Va.. shows the indebtedness of Elsn 
College to be entirely liquidated and the en- 
dowment increased to $30,000. That the 
churches composing the Convention pay a fixed 
sum annually of .?1,800 for Elon College. 
Thus the college is freed from embarrassment 
as to its future progress. At the recent com- 
mencement it was decided to build a new dor- 
mitory to cost about $20,000, with modern 
equipments. Rev. W. W. Staley, D. D., is 
president of the college and its financial affairs 
are entrusted to him. 

The Convention has also inaugurated plans 
for an orphanage, for which considerable funds 
have already been contributed. Its location 
was placed in the liands of the following com- 
mittee : Rev. W. S. Long, D. D.. Rev. J. L. 
Foster, and W. J. Lee, Esq. Rev. J. L. Fos- 
ter, Raleigli, N. C, is secretary of the com- 
mittee and authorized agent of this fund. 

At the Berea Convention Rev. M. W. But- 
ler, Raleigh, N. C, was made Sunday-school 
L>epartment Secretary. 

The Christian Sun was purchased by the 
Southern Convention and Rev. J. O. Atkinson, 
elected editor.
